[ ♪ music ♪ ] >> well, the calm in the middle east is non-existent. as a matter of fact, today was supposed to be a day of trying to work things out. hillary clinton, secretary of state, broke off her trip to asia, went to israel today. the bombing as we just learned from

. as to this mandate business. >> obama: i got one mandate. i got a mandate to help middle class families, and families that are working hard. that's my mandate. >> jennifer: and tax cuts to the rich? >> obama: when it comes to the top 2% what i'm not going to do is extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it. >> jennifer: susan rice has been under assault as of late. >> obama: when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. >> jennifer: alrighty then. things under control here. we'll just get on back to our regularly scheduled programming. previously on "capitalcapitol affair"." >> obama: general petraeus had an extraordinary career. he serveed this country with distinction in iraq afghanistan, and head of c.i.a. people are innocent until proven guilty. >> jennifer: that's president obama speaking out for the first time about the sex scandal that abruptly ended the career of four-star general petraeus. he has a lot of people who saw him as a golden boy wondering what happened to the fellow who could do no wrong. bu

's not just the insulting. it's if republicans do not work with president obama when, you know, this election was really about that and the president's efforts, the republicans still won't come to the table, i think that that is potentially -- you know, intent -- incredibly damaging for them in 2014. >> stephanie: right. we wish rush and glen with the whole america's suck for the next four years. >> this is showing me that the body of america is even sicker than i thought it was. >> i am fascinated by our country, because we have changed so rapidly. 12 years ago i could say with real assurance, i knew who americans were. >> stephanie: that has got to hurt the most karl, glenn beck is disappointed in you. >> well 16 years ago, glenn beck knew why to get his cocaine. >> stephanie: yes. >> love it or leave it. >> stephanie: yes. >> i was looking at my dictionary looking for a better word than shoden freud to explain absolute nirvana. >> stephanie: all right. karl frisch remains the side car. we'll continue with this when we return. >> announcer: i just snarfed
. >> obama: tonight in this election, you, the american people reminded us that while our road has been hard while our journey has been long we have picked ourselves up. we have fought our way back and we know in our hearts for the united states of america the best is yet to come. [ cheers ] >> but it wasn't such a good night for the republicans who can't seem to get it. poor things. they have got their blinders on. they have got their feet in cement. they are still refusing to acknowledge that the world has evolved; that their universe of while maleness deficit obsession, zero tax pledges, and their 20th century love affair with trickle down is no more. the world has changed, the american people have grown. minorities are occupying a larger and larger sector of the government. women have been able to vote for a while now. people understand when they have been given the shaft, and yet the republicans have their fingers firmly inserted in their ears, eyes closed granting nah, nah, nah, nah, because what they really believe is they can make up for the changing demograp
the irony here is that obama and boehner still have no plans to meet themselves face-to-face. the two did meet before congress' thanksgiving recess along with the other two three members of the house and the senate. they had plans to meet again this week but still nothing is scheduled. it is not a great sign and shows that the two groups are practically incapable of working together. the last time obama and boehner tried putting together a big deal over the budget, that completely collapsed and this time around, the american people are getting less and less optimistic that congress will be able to reach a deal before the tax hikes and spending cuts kick in just 33 days. it is going to look bad for congress if they cannot get this done and some republicans are saying it's time to give in. politico's also reporting oklahoma representative tom cole told his g.o.p. colleagues yesterday to move forward with the president's he plan to extend the tax breaks for everyone except the top 2%. cole said that he does not agree with raisin
this evening president obama will host the cast and crew of the movie "lincoln" for a screening at the white house. he is coming off a very important news conference yesterday. not only was this the first since his re-election, it was also the first he's held in eight months. several reporters did want to talk about the general petraeus scandal, of course but the president fortunately did get to spend a lot of time on the fiscal cliff which is what he was hoping for. while left room for a compromise by not taking a hard, red line on taxes he did say that he will not extend cuts for the rich. >> obama: when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further tax cut for folks who don't need it which would cost close to a trillion dollars. >> senate democrats are hoping he will stick to that claim and not compromise. with republicans they're asking the president not to cave in on talks over the fiscal cliff. those do start tomorrow. west virginia's jay rockefeller and iowa's tom harkin are passing
that president obama won reelection >> there are some republicans who recognize they did lose and that new revenue new tax revenue will have to be part of any deficit deal. i noticed mitch mcconnell's talked about tax rates. he's going to insist that tax rates not go any higher. you've got the mathematicians trying to raise the numbers. you can exact the rate throughout a person's entire income. they're looking for ways to finagle this. republicans are going to have to retreat and they're going to get a better deal before the end of the year than going into the new year. >> i want to ask you about that, what eleanor said about the end of the year rather than going into the new year. who benefits, if anyone, if they kick the can down the road, get a new congress. isn't there something to be said with this new democratic strength coming into the senate? it's a little stronger there. you have a stronger president picked up a few seats in the house. doesn't kicking the can down until february or march and do something that's maybe a bandaid now help the cost. >> it helps to a certain extent, b
, the obama administration implemented a federal program this year to lower emissions required emissions over the next two decades. here's the president describing what that policy will do. >> obama: by 2025, the average fuel economy of their vehicles will nearly double to almost 55 miles per gallon. it will save a typical family more than $8,000 in fuel costs over time. >> jennifer: now of course, if you get an electric vehicle like i have, it is over 250 miles per gallon if you go to the gas at all. anyway, if president obama likes it then the right wing, of course, must hate it! and they do. with a passion and vitriol that is usually reserved for the war on christmas and misplaced birth certificates. >> even with the $7500 federal rebate or whatever you get for it, it is still beyond pricy for a fred flintstone car. >> trying to push this crazy green agenda. we're twice the size. >> i can't tell you how annoying. get out of car. go in the trunk. get this long cord. hook it into the side. plug it into th
